La Massa is located in Panzano and was born from the will of Giampaolo Motta, who decided to invest in his personal vision. Giampaolo comes from a family linked to the leather industry, but he has always been passionate about the world of wine; after studying at the Bordeaux wine institute he returned to Italy and worked for some well-known companies in the Chianti Classico area. He will then buy the La Massa farm and begin his journey / revolution with this company. After 10 years he leaves the Chianti Classico consortium, determined to experiment with the Bordeaux style down to the smallest detail. Then the two highly successful labels of the company will arrive: “La Massa” which is a blend of the typical Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which combines the vivacity and freshness of Sangiovese and Chianti Classico with a greater elegance derived from international vines, as if to unite these two territories through an invisible thread and “Giorgio Primo”, a Bordeaux blend in all respects dedicated to his grandfather, to whom he had promised to create a great wine with aging potential.
Coming exclusively from vineyard No. 6, planted in 1999 and facing south-west, it is vinified and aged individually in French oak tonneaux.
Ruby red. The nose has hints of wild berries and violets, with hints of wet earth and undergrowth. On the palate it is intense, full-bodied, structured with a fruity and velvety sip, soft tannins with a long finish.
In combination it is perfect with red meat, game, braised meats and roasts.
